Hi,

I have Windows 10 with G DATA Internet Security. I use a wireless mouse. A time ago I replugged the mouse nano/micro receiver to another (left) usb port because I needed to plug my printer on the right side. The next time I started my PC, a pop-up appedared:

I'm sure it concerns the mouse receiver because when I plugged it out the pop-up disappeared, and when I plugged it back it appeared again. What was going on? I don't even have a wireless keyboard and nothing from Xenta company. Is it possible that the receiver is interfering with my neighbor's keyboard upstairs? The second thing (I know it's kind of paranoid) is it possible that neighbor was trying to break into my computer through the mouse receiver?

 

Thank you in advance,

Adam.

 

Oh, this is my second account on bleepingcomputer because I've abandoned my previous e-mail and wanted to have this account with my current e-mail.
